Product Description

There's been a strange phenomenon in the world of music lately. Artists with only two or three releases are putting out greatest hits records. This is not the case with Vancouver's Matthew Good. With seven CDs released over the last ten years, 14 Juno award nominations and over 900,000 discs sold, the time has come for a definitive collection. Good tends to write his songs in one of two styles; first, the full-on modern rock melodies, well-crafted tracks that tend to appeal to the college crowd. (Anthems like "Hello Time Bomb," "Load Me Up," and the throbbing "Everything Is Automatic" fall into this category.) Where Matt goes from very good to great is his other style: fragile, floating compositions that sweep orchestrally from whispers to waves of deeply emotive choruses. Included in that style, you'll find the pensive "Strange Days," the implosive "Symbolistic White Walls," and the stunning "Apparitions," a powerful track which was further enhanced by one of the best Canadian videos ever made. It's rare to say, but Matt Good's videos are frequently highly watchable, and the deluxe version of this collection is a worthy investment. The second disc contains many extras: all of Matt's music videos, some documentary footage, and 19 additional music tracks, including compelling acoustic reworkings of his many classics. Matt's success has been understated at times, but when such a grand collection of songs are come together, Good's contribution to Canadian music is undeniably strong: this is truly a great greatest hits disc. --Denise Sheppard

Format: Audio CD
This is the yardstick by which all greatest hits albums should be measured. Some may disagree with the track selection, and to me leaving stuff off "The Audio Of Being" from this album is a mistake, but this is a great compilation.
As an Australian out here in the antipodes, the DVD is the thing that makes this outstanding. Matt Good videos do not get played out here, and his songs don't for that matter, but too see the development of the visual form of his songs is fascinating.
I would recommend this to any person with an interest in Matthew Good's career.
Those who choose to rubbish this album by attacking the man should have a real close look at themselves, give themselves a few uppercuts and get a life!!!!

Your facts don't mean a thing, and whether or not they are true are irrelevant. What matt did as a teenager is his business. It is what he is doing with his life now that is relevant. Why is it wrong to idolize someone whom is politically outspoken , and who is trying to change the world for the better? What does matt being hit in the head with a shoe have to do with anything? Next time do some research before you criticize someone.

Now For The Album

The Album is 5 stars, but I think it would be better for you to go out and by his other records 1 by 1 and listen to them. Matt has always been in the business of making albums, and by that I mean he does not put filler on the albums. Everyone of his songs is heartfelt and is worth your money. Of course there are songs Matt personally has grown to hate such as, indestructible and rico, because of their redundant nature. However, I like these songs, but they are not his best songs. In my opinion his two best songs are apparitions and suburbia, but of course its all subjective. If you've never heard matthew good's songs before, in a coma is a great place to start. I would get the deluxe edition solely because of the accoustic reworkings. Anyways Cheers:D

Right off the bat, the 3 new tracks are worth the price of admission. "Oh Be Joyful" is just an incredible rocker - maybe his best balls-to-the-wall asskicker since "Generation X-Wing" !!
Having said that, my only beef with this collection is the lack of any tracks from "Audio of Being". I've seen him live 3 times, and he's played a grand total of one song from this album, one time. For some reason, Mr. Good seems to have a hate-on for what is possibly his best album.
Inevitably, most people are going to quibble about the track selection for any "greatest hits" package, but to ignore an entire album is a tad 'weird', to say the least. (But then, noone ever accused Matt of being stable.) Therefore, only 4 stars out of 5. Otherwise, the selection of tracks should please most folks.
The second CD includes some strange acoustic versions of other tracks, and although a bit jarring on first listen, I found that they grew on me quite a bit after a few listens. (Some of the selections are from "Audio of Being" - yay !)
I'd like to see a live DVD like the Hip recently put out - but somehow I don't think that will ever happen. So as far as DVD's go, this is probably going to be it : a compilation of his videos. Still, they're enjoyable to watch as they're a lot more interesting than 99% of the dross one encounters on MuchMusic these days.

Matt decided to take a break from recording an album, and gave us this gem of a greatest hits cd, along with 2 new songs, and a b-side.
There is nothing wrong with the first cd, although he failed to add anything from "Audio of Being." You can find some of those songs done acoustically on the second disc, which was divided into three parts: "Rooms", "Loser Anthems", and "Lo-fi B-sides", the latter two were previously available as limited edition discs. Although we have heard "Born To Kill" on "Beautiful Midnight", this original version doesn't disappoint, and is almost superior to the version heard on "Midnight".
"Rooms" includes nine songs re-recorded as acoustic songs. I give Matt credit for including such songs as "Advertising On Police Cars", "Tripoli", and "Truffle Pigs." There are some songs I wish weren't done acoustically, such as "Hello Time Bomb", "North American for Life", and "Generation X-Wing." These songs are better hard and heavy.
The DVD has every Matt Good video ever made, and also includes a bonus animated video for "Whle We Were Hunting Rabbits." My faves would have to be the two songs excluded from the hits cd: "Carmelina" with the classic bad joke by Rich and discussion about the lyrics to Destiny Child's "Bootylicious", and the gnome-stealing video for "Antipop" featuring Dale Earndhart travelling around America with Matt and their new gnome buddy.
Get this three-discer while you still can, people!
